Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin announced on Monday that the Knesset will hold an emergency meeting during the summer recess to discuss the Trajtenberg Committee’s conclusions, when they are released in the coming weeks.

Rivlin explained that the meeting comes in response to a request from MK Miri Regev (Likud), who said the committee’s recommendations are “first and foremost in the public’s interest.”

“The Knesset – specifically the Finance Committee - is closely following the Trajtenberg Committee’s meetings,” the Knesset Speaker explained. “Without a doubt, we must give our opinions on the deep economic and social consequences of the committee’s conclusions.”
